I whipped this wreath up today…
My inspiration came from this Home Goods wreath I found on clearance for $30! Too much for me…
Plus I had a box full of seashells and driftwood that I had collected over the last several years.
The flat pieces of wood were from Jo-Ann Fabrics, I bought them to use for something else, they worked well for the base. I cut out a circle (or a shape we’ll call a circle) wreath from some particle board scraps I had in the garage.
And then just started hot gluing on the layers of driftwood…and just kept going until I could no longer see the particle board.
This driftwood was collected by me in Maine and Connecticut and some of it came from Scotland (from etsy for this project) and some was sent to me by my Facebook friend Danielle from California.
Here’s what the back looks like. I realized I forgot to add a hanger, so I need to figure that out.
The seashells are all special too, they have been saved for years, I hot glued them right on to the driftwood.
And here it is…
I chose not to paint some of the wood, so mine more than a little different from the Home Goods version.
I’m definitely liking mine more!
A wreath full of fun memories from the beach…doesn’t get any better than that!
And how great does it look on my new table/bench?
I am linking to these great parties!
